about

I've seen Ron Sexsmith live more than any other artist (who I'm not mates with or haven't toured with) simply because I am in love with his amazing songs. I have too many favourites to name, Coming up the Road, Cheap Hotel, (Everything from Blue Boy), and on and on.

It was hard to decide which song to cover and why I chose this one I'm not really sure. I just love the sentiment. I don't know about you, but a God that truly loves everyone is the God that I want to believe in...and after the birth of my son...the line "Like a mother loves her son, no strings at all...unconditional" really struck me and seemed a fitting end to my covers album. I'd love to do a whole album of Ron covers someday (spoken like a true die-hard fan) but for now I hope you enjoy this one lovely song.

lyrics

God loves everyone
Like a mother loves her son
No strings at all
Unconditional
Never one to judge
Would never hold a grudge
'Bout what's been done
God loves everyone

There are no gates in heaven
Everyone gets in
Queer or straight
Souls of every faith
Hell is in our minds
Hell is in this life
But when it's gone
God takes everyone

Its love is like a womb
It's like the air from room to room
It surrounds us all
The living and the dead
May we never lose the thread
That surrounds us all

The killer in his cell
The atheist as well
The pure of heart
And the wild at heart
Are all worthy of its grace
It's written in the face
Of everyone
God loves everyone

There's no need to be saved
No need to be afraid
Cause when it's done
God takes everyone

God loves everyone
